how do you learn to draw heads and faces on a level where you can do it from any angle and in almost any style? i'm practicing them right now, studying from real photos, and they are semi-accurate, but ugly as sin, and lose all the pleasing aspects of the original photo

what book is it? i have fwap, but i dont recall it getting very detailed in the heads, maybe i wasnt paying attention
>Drawing the Head and Hands
>Figure Drawing For All It's Worth

both of these would suit you fine, but frankly the fundamentals to accomplish this are pretty simple to grasp; you might not need to obtain a whole book or two in order to understand it. I recommend parsing through the infographics in this thread >>5658028, some of which are specifically oriented towards head construction from perspective (using almost the exact same technical methods that loomis teaches, and using style deviations such as you requested).
thank you, i'll take a look at these. my endgoal is an understanding on the level where i can do any angle and stylize how i please, and for that i think im going to need a very deep understanding, and lots of practice. that second one is always the hardest part haha

recently got into woodcuts, and because wood is expensive i bought a bunch of those shitty $0.50 pieces of soft-ass plywood to practice on. well the wood is total ass, falls apart, generally a pain to work with, although to be fair i'm also a total noob and the wood is for a different purpose entirely.

that got me thinking though, what if i actually used to the wood to burn in the relief that i want. i'd probably still have to gouge large volumes since it would take fucking forever to burn large areas away, but for smaller areas i imagine it would give me incredible ability to control detail.

i tried looking online for info about people doing this but couldn't find anything. anyone tried this or have an opinions on it?
Dunno but for some reason my sister has a spare woodburn set which I'm getting next year. So I will probably also try to make some things to use for prints.

I liked it, I think it's promising. this pic theme is a good one, look for themes like that where you have a lot of identification, and learn to spread yourself, good luck.

If you have the imagination to come up with scenarios, then go for it. The work itself can always be improved upon, but what's important is to have that spark of imagination and endurance to continue making them daily. If you think you have that spark/endurance, then go for it. If not yet, then just focus on improving/studying until one day while you're drawing you feel it ignite in you.
Only thing I'd say is that your MC looks like Finn from adventure time with those ear points
I think so but you should consider changing the eyes.

How it works:
1) Draw something (it could be even be in ink)
2) Post it and quote your post from the day before

To inflate our picture count I will post more sketches.
I thought I had done tons of cats with moons already but apparently (barring the two Inktober drawings) this is the only one. I still thought I wanted something fancy and weird so we shall see. I also had a terrible migraine today so my progress today is slow. I will probably only finish it tomorrow.

I think that good linework mostly comes to down to confidence. If you know what you're drawing and what purpose your lines are supposed to serve, they tend to look good. Try to pull off good lines in just one stroke and try to always have a clear purpose for each stroke you do. Understand the subject matter, the shapes etc. and draw clear lines. Try not to draw on top of lines you have already drawn, if you feel the desire to do it, you should just erase the previous line completely and draw it again. At least for the purpose of practice try to be very strict with this.

It's also worth noting that there's more to good linework than just getting the shape of the object right. Lines also portray emotion and feeling, depending on how they are drawn. For instance, if you look at death metal band logos, they're often just abstract messes of lines, but they also have a lot of feeling in them. It's one of those things that are better felt than explained, but if you try to draw "cool" looking lines on a paper, you will eventually get a feel for it. Experiment with different styles and see what sort of feeling the different lines give to you. Some things look better when they're a bit shaky, sometimes you want very straight, robotic lines and so on. When drawing an explosion, the lines should probably be very energetic, but for a heavy box sitting on the ground stable lines would work better.

These tips aren't really set in stone though. I know that some good artists actually draw their lines little by little, especially in digital art. Sometimes scratchy lines look good! A lot of it is about finding your own style and then developing it. But in general, knowing what you're drawing and how you want to portray it makes linework look good.

In digital art the brushes you use also affect your linework way more than in traditional art.
Thanks for the tips. I think it all boils down to confidence then. I'm always trying to find the correct placement for the line, so I keep drawing over it until it gets confusing. I'll force myself to draw one line only every time, at least until I can get past this.

I'm starting to think that I'm not going to "make it". I've learned a lot in the last two years, but not enough. I think of all the beautiful things I want to draw and realize that there isn't time. My wife, child and especially job are huge gains goblins. And I'm to blame too, because even when I do have time to draw I usually don't feel like it anymore.
>My wife, child and especially job
I'm so sorry, anon. ;_;
While I think you can still make it in 20 years when the kid is gone, it will nonetheless be hard and frustrating.

how do I develop an art style? just copy stuff I like until appears?
1. learn to draw
2. try different things
3. theirs no third point
heavily experiment
don't be afraid of failure
>just copy stuff I like until appears?
no just copying will not suddenly make your drawings better
everyone already has a preferred style and appeals, doesnt mean they can draw it
look really, really hard at stuff you like
try to do that stuff
experiment a lot
fuck up a lot
draw regularly for a really really long time
if it's difficult you're probably learning something

Any recommended tutorials and such for sketching and painting on Procreate. Out of using this, drawing traditionally and using CSP, I feel like Procreate is better suited for more loosework, for me personally anyways.
Anybody have Aruurara’s brushes?

I just got Procreate recently, is there anything wrong with the default brushes from a total beg perspective? The only thing I saw recently was the artist Shirabii uses 6B. flat brush, round brush and air brush to do most of his work.
Procreate has the best default brushes out of any art software. They're totally fine, especially for beginners.
